Bridlington Residents Donate Gifts To Charity
Thursday, 07 January 2010
The store was busy collecting presents in the run up to Christmas in aid of East Riding Children's Trust for local families, children and young people.
Mark Kunz, store director of Bridlington's Specsavers store, says: 'We were been blown away by the number of Specsavers customers who donated gifts - especially as purse strings are so stretched at this time of year.
'I know the generosity of Bridlington's residents will make a big difference to those involved in the East Riding Children's Trust for local families, children and young people and that they'll be thrilled with all the gifts.'
Due to the overwhelming response from customers, the Specsavers store has today announced that it will continue its mission and launch a gift amnesty to collect unwanted Christmas presents throughout January.
Mark adds: 'I'm sure most of us end up with duplicated Christmas presents, too many pairs of socks, jumpers and bottles of bubble bath so we've decided to appeal to our customers good nature once more and ask them to bring in any unwanted gifts to store.'
People wanting to donate gifts can hand them into the Specsavers store on 29 King Street throughout January.
